Problem: A. What constant acceleration, in SI units, must a car have to go from zero to 60 mph in 10 s?B. What fraction of g is this?C. How far has the car traveled when it reaches 60 mph? Give your answer both in SI units and in feet.

A. v0 = 0 m/s, vf = 60mph = 60(mih)(1609m1mi)(1h3600s)=26.8m/s, t = 10s

Using the kinematics equation:

vf=v0+at
